Mayor Michael Nutter, State Senator Michael Stack, State Rep. John Taylor, Deputy Mayor Mike DiBerardinis, and former Congressman Bob Borski and other dignitaries joined board members and staff of the Delaware River City Corporation to cut the ribbon on the new 1.6 mile long Port Richmond Trail.

The trail, which is part of the East Coast Greenway, is the newest addition to the Delaware River greenway that is being constructed piece by piece by Bucks Countyk, DRCC, and the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation.  It was constructed with TIGER funds that the City of Philadelphia and Camden won in 2010.

Press coverage was great and we tip our hats to Tom Branigan and others at DRCC for working so hard for bringing this project to fruition.  Thanks also to Parks and Recreation, the Streets Department and the Mayor's Office of Transportation and Utilities.
